    Nominet are closing their official forum because it has become increasingly hostile by a few members, especially towards Nominet staff :eek::rolleyes:

    He wasn't kidding, there were a few threads about the closure popping up on there, now all locked down.

    12:00 - 12:15 - An update on the expiring domains consultation... should be interesting.

    Also, @Whois-Search has posted his questions for the AGM which he had posted in the Nominet forum (before closure) at the link below, incase anyone agrees with and wants to ask a question (I think they will limit it to one or two questions per person):

    Maybe we can salvage something positive from this. Perhaps Nominet has forced the membership's hand in providing another forum for members to engage with and measure Nominet. Rather than squashing it, they may just have accidentally given up control of the biggest thorn in their side.

    I could set something up, but it’d need a good domain name.
